Update - We skied A Basin today and they were running the new lift into Montezuma...However the bowl wasn't open and no one was riding the lift. Talked with the liftie at the top tower and he is saying that patrol wants another 2-feet before they open it. From the top tower you have a pretty good view of the terrain and trust me it was very rocky. It looks like they could open the groomer right down the center of the bowl now and nothing else. Some of the terrain looks like it will never get coverage, specifically, the steeps to skiers right (the best terrain there in my view) start out with a nice cornice, run for a few hundred feet and end up in a giant boulder field. Looks like you'll get a few nice turns and then have to traverse out to the groomer.
The rest of the runs we took off Pali were pretty rocky. After about a 6 runs we called it a day and hit the backcountry.
